Cabotagem como alternativa para o transporte de carnes da região Sul para o Norte/Nordeste brasileiro: um estudo de caso

The transportation costs are one of the main factors for companies’ competitiveness. In order to decrease the costs, companies are frequently searching for different ways to transport their products to their consumers. This paper analyzes the economic viability of meat transport from the South to the North and Northeast of Brazil, using intercoastal port services. Using a transport cost optimization model and linear programming, our results indicate the economic feasibility of this option.
